On Friday afternoon I had my first acupuncture treatment ever in my life. Dr Yu Qi (as in Qi Gong) is a lovely person. If your were casting a movie that needed a Traditional Chinese Medicine expert you would pick him. He is kind, sincere, honest, gracious, and gentle. I only said "ouch" once, even though he put at least 20 needles into my back, legs and hands.

Dr. Qi has 32 years of clinical experience including 22 in China. He holds a Diplomat in China in both acupuncture and herbology. He has been teaching Chinese Medicine in Florida for 11 years. He uses acupuncture for many conditions in addition to pain.

Dr. Qi told me that acupuncture would help but not necessarily 100%;he also said I might experience relief for my back, but that it could fade over  a few days time. He needs 8-10 treatments for them to make a difference.

Saturday was the best day I had back-wise in almost a year, after multiple physical therapy efforts only made it worse. Today I am hopeful. Time will tell and I will keep you posted.

Meanwhile, if you want to contact Dr. Qi he can be reached at:

Bye for Now,
